Just back for my Asian trip and too happy to share these stunning photos with you guys!
I always adored Asia, for those of you who don’t know I have a degree in Far Eastern studies, I used to speak Japanese (now I have forgotten most of it though haha) and I have traveled around Asia quite a bit.
This time I flew to Singapore and Malaysia for work. Wow, it is quite a trip from LA I must say! Before I always traveled to this part of the world from Paris or London and it didn’t feel as far:)
I packed loads of light comfortable outfits – culottes and tops, as well as flowy dresses and a couple of light leather jackets to throw on once inside. The temperature indoors is not far from one of the fridge – oh those Asian countries and their air conditioning!!!
In Singapore my days were really busy so I practically didn’t have time for myself. I managed to spare an hour in the morning for a breakkie with my friend from London who now moved to Singapore and we met up for a delicious breakfast at PS Cafe. She is working on her second book, a Singapore travel guide and I was lucky to get my hands on her first edition, a gorgeous Bali travel guide (you can get it here) that I am oh-certainly putting to use next year 😻
I will not hide the fact that my luggage got heavier after I made a stop at Charles&Keith and Pablo (wearing one of the pairs I purchased on those pictures). I usually buy expensive quality footwear as shoes hold a special place in my heart, but those Singaporean brands with their uber-fashionable 50 dollar footwear just make you loose your mind somehow… Haha!
I was off to Malaysia after Singapore and of course spared a Saturday morning for a visit of my favorite China Town. This time I went heavy on temples, visited both Guandi Temple and Sri Maha Mariamman Hindu Temple. The heat was crazy as usual so we stopped at the market for a traditional ice coffee with condensed milk.
I fell in love with the Indian flower market where I stumbled upon the prettiest flower necklaces I have ever seen. Handmade. By the folks on the picture below – they were kind and gracefully agreed to pose for me:)
Food adventures were beyond in Malaysia this time, one of the clients took us to a local market/restaurant street. The place we sat down at used to be a fish and meat shop that extended into 4 shops and then a sort of a restaurant if it could be called such. While we were questioning the hygiene of this place our order of black pepper crab arrived alongside other 1000 dishes and I literally couldn’t believe how good the food was. AAA experience!!!!
I felt my trip was a little short for such a long travel all the way from LA. Promised myself that next time will be longer. Cannot wait
